Crazy paving

Day six on the beach, sunny and hot, the start of the Bank holiday weekend and half term. The holiday makers were out on the beach, lots of ice creams and wind breaks.

The WWII rubbish pit carried on producing more bottles, brushes and rusty iron, Maisy found part of a badge, the letters RA in bronze.

A Brylcream bottle, brushes and a Brilliantine bottle.

The remains of the 18th century building expanded, with boundary walls appearing and best of all, what we hoped for, a well paved area behind the back wall. There also seems to be another building in the ‘yard’, it may even be part of a lean-to, we need to reveal more to get the whole picture. Rob found a large fragment of salt glazed stoneware pottery right on top of the ‘yard’ stones, so good dating when we research it a bit more.
